John Force and Tony Schumacher raced to their first victories of the season Sunday in the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.
The 67-year-old Force beat daughter Courtney in the Funny Car final between Chevy Camaros. He finished in 3.965 seconds at 319.45 mph to her performance of 3.963 at 314.75. It was the 16-time season champion's seventh victory at the track and the record-extending 144th of his career. He hadn't won since June 2015 in New Hampshire.
Schumacher, an eight-time Top Fuel season champion, also busted a lengthy winless streak with his third victory at the track and 82nd of his career. He outran defending season champion Antron Brown in the final with a run of 3.802 at 324.28. Schumacher hadn't won since July 2015 in Chicago.
Allen Johnson won in Pro Stock, and Andrew Hines in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
